About Author

  1. Marion Zimmer Bradley Ana Maria Pinto da Silva says:
    Marion Eleanor Zimmer Bradley was an American author of fantasy novels such as The Mists of Avalon and the Darkover series, often with a feminist outlook.Bradley s first published novel length work was Falcons of Narabedla, first published in the May 1957 issue of Other Worlds When she was a child, Bradley stated that she enjoyed reading adventure fantasy authors such as Henry Kuttner, Edmond Hamilton, and Leigh Brackett, especially when they wrote about the glint of strange suns on worlds that never were and never would be Her first novel and much of her subsequent work show their influence strongly.Early in her career, writing as Morgan Ives, Miriam Gardner, John Dexter, and Lee Chapman, Marion Zimmer Bradley produced several works outside the speculative fiction genre, including some gay and lesbian pulp fiction novels For example, I Am a Lesbian was published in 1962 Though relatively tame by today s standards, they were considered pornographic when published, and for a long time she refused to disclose the titles she wrote under these pseudonyms.Her 1958 story The Planet Savers introduced the planet of Darkover, which became the setting of a popular series by Bradley and other authors The Darkover milieu may be considered as either fantasy with science fiction overtones or as science fiction with fantasy overtones, as Darkover is a lost earth colony where psi powers developed to an unusual degree Bradley wrote many Darkover novels by herself, but in her later years collaborated with other authors for publication her literary collaborators have continued the series since her death.Bradley took an active role in science fiction and fantasy fandom, promoting interaction with professional authors and publishers and making several important contributions to the subculture.For many years, Bradley actively encouraged Darkover fan fiction and reprinted some of it in commercial Darkover anthologies, continuing to encourage submissions from unpublished authors, but this ended after a dispute with a fan over an unpublished Darkover novel of Bradley s that had similarities to some of the fan s stories As a result, the novel remained unpublished, and Bradley demanded the cessation of all Darkover fan fiction.Bradley was also the editor of the long running Sword and Sorceress anthology series, which encouraged submissions of fantasy stories featuring original and non traditional heroines from young and upcoming authors Although she particularly encouraged young female authors, she was not averse to including male authors in her anthologies Mercedes Lackey was just one of many authors who first appeared in the anthologies She also maintained a large family of writers at her home in Berkeley Ms Bradley was editing the final Sword and Sorceress manuscript up until the week of her death in September of 1999.Probably her most famous single novel is The Mists of Avalon A retelling of the Camelot legend from the point of view of Morgaine and Gwenhwyfar, it grew into a series of books like the Darkover series, the later novels are written with or by other authors and have continued to appear after Bradley s death.In 2000, she was posthumously awarded the World Fantasy Award for Lifetime Achievement In 2014, Bradley was accused of sexual abuse by her daughter, Moira Greyland, who claims that she was molested from the age of 3 to 12 Greyland also claimed that she was not the only victim and that she was one of the people who reported her father, Walter H Breen, for child molestation In response to these allegations Bradley s publisher Victor Gollancz Ltd announced that they will donate all income from the sales of Bradley s e books to the charity Save the Children From

  1. Gwen says:
    Although Bradley set up much of Avalon and Britannia in The Mists of Avalon, the stories in Lady of Avalon actually take place beforehand, and Bradley spends the first third of the book describing Avalon as it was before it was closed off in mists, and Britannia before Christianity had really taken hold Because there are actually three stories told within the context of one novel, Bradley must introduce the reader to the changes that have taken place over time at the beginning of each new tale T [...]

  2. Karen says:
    This book is the prequel to The Mists of Avalon and I ve read it quite a few times over the years when I would binge read the entire series There are actually 3 novellas that make up this book The first is the direct sequel to The Forest House and tells us when, why, and how the secret Avalon was created by the High Priestess The second novella is the story of a priestess who is made to marry a Britannian Admiral to tie Britannia to Avalon The 3rd novella gives the back story of Viviane The 1st [...]

  3. Drew Patrick Smith says:
    Review from the PFS Book ClubWhat I Liked This book, unlike the popular The Mists of Avalon, is swift and uncomplicated The characters are still interesting it was especially nice to see Viviane s backstory, since she was one of the characters that made Mists so great, and the plot zings along at a breakneck speed.The three part book, basically a trilogy of novellas, is smart and different from most books on the shelves these days, so it was a nice change from the usual And, in general, each of [...]

  4. RondaTutt says:
    More great stories by MZB I enjoyed reading the three parts in this book However, I have to say that this book along with Priestess of Avalon should of been one book but in chronological order so the reader can enjoy and understand the story instead of going back and forth between the books Part I of this book is the direct sequel to The Forest House and I really enjoyed reading about Caillean s foster son Eilan Gaius Macellius son Gawan and the Fairy Queens daughter Sienna s trials, but was ver [...]

  5. Melanie says:
    Sometimes I don t really know how I should feel about a book This is always the case when I read any book from the Mists of Avalon series and it wasn t any different with this one This book is not exactly boring I just got to a point in the story where I just can t stand any of the characters Not even Morgana In fact, I spent time trying not to just burn this book rather than enjoying it properly Gwenhwyfar is possibly the most annoying, stupid, acidic, venomous, rancid, bitter, inconsistent, c [...]

  6. Patricia says:
    I didn t love this half as much as I loved The Mists of Avalon and maybe that s to be expected Mists is as legendary as the subject of Arthurian legends itself and coming as a prequel, Lady of Avalon has plenty to live up to Nevertheless, Marion Zimmer Bradley s talent for creating some of fantasy s most powerful women is as formidable as ever in Caillean, Sianna and of course, Viviane Her characters are complex, layered with the sublime and hence, prove to be all the human when events take a d [...]

  7. Feathzzz says:
    Things heat up The plot gets intense Gwenwyhfar is an illogical, self righteous little twat Her theology is so propagandized and not really actually reasoned I keep getting mad and wondering why somebody doesn t just say, You re a bigot Why are you so afraid and hating The Roman Christians violently invaded this land, came and started a war, murdered the original inhabits into submission, and then have the audacity to say our culture and religion is evil And the way she judges other women, can [...]

  8. Robin Taylor says:
    Lady of Avalon, continues Caillean s story from where we last see her in The Forest House With her vivid descriptive narrative and masterful story teller s art Marion Zimmer Bradley shows us a world as it may have been but touched by Magic We see Avalon become the home of the priestesses of the great Goddess Through the cycles of the year and the lives of three of Avalon s high priestesses, Caillean, Dierna and Viviane we see Avalon come to the destiny which is fulfilled in The Mists of Avalon.

  9. Orenda says:
    Loved it One of my favorite books, and I consider myself to be a pretty big Arthurian legend nerd I ve read this AND listened to it on audio with Davina Porter if you are going to get it as an audio book, I recommend her highly.

  10. Mariana says:
    I liked this one but not as much as I did the previous book I will blame Gwen because she steps on my nerve and I can t really stand her Not sure if I like hating her or what because there are people that likes disliking someone But I m not sure.

  11. Suellen says:
    Truth said, I ve read the four books one after another, nonstopping to swallow I have no opinion of each in particular.

  12. Nicole says:
    Im Jahre 98 n Chr ist Avalon die letzte Zufluchtst tte des alten Glaubens, w hrend sich ber das restliche Britannien die Herrschaft der R mer ausdehnt Noch leben die Druiden und PriesterInnen von Avalon zwar in Eintracht mit den ersten Christen auf der Insel, und auch von den R mern wird ihr Heiligtum geachtet, doch die Zeiten ndern sich schnell Aber auf Avalon wirken noch andere, ltere Kr fte, und in h chster Not gelingt es, die Insel im Nebel versinken zu lassen und von der u eren Welt abzutre [...]

  13. Kate says:
    Abandoned because I couldn t be bothered to care and then I started reading about scandals and the author instead and her work felt repugnant to me I hope I can still re read The Mists of Avalon without feeling gross.

  14. Sofia Teixeira says:
    Como sabem, antes deste livro j tinha lido os Corvos de Avalon e A Casa da Floresta A curiosidade desperta em mim era tanta que fui a correr aproveitar o desconto de 25% no Jumbo e comprei este livro N o estou nada arrependida Apesar de n o ser um livro muito muito apaixonante, foi um livro que mostrou imenso, explicou ainda mais e um livro da MZB sempre um livro dela, principalmente nesta grande saga que a de Avalon.Uma das raz es pela qual o livro n o excelente, e acredito que seja por pr pria [...]

  15. Pam says:
    The PrecursorFrom before the tale of Arthur, the Lady of Avalon ruled This story tells of the predecessors to the Lady of the Lake, the power of the Goddess and the Druids, and the conflict of Brittania vs the rest of the world Well done

  16. Diana Marques says:
    In this volume I missed some of the magic that was present in the previous volumes Morgaine has abandoned Avalon and renounced the Goddess and the life as a priestess Therefore, there are few references to the Celtic culture, the Goddess and the mystique and power of Avalon In this book it is evident the presence of the Christian religion, which is gaining ground among the populations and their rulers, who adopt these beliefs and reject the pagan beliefs and rituals Although it is interesting t [...]

  17. Kythe42 says:
    Lady of Avalon by Marion Zimmer Bradley is a compilation of three novellas, each set in a different time period, and each with a different High Priestess or Lady of Avalon Part one is a direct sequel to The Forest House and tells the story of how the protective mists that separate Avalon from the surrounding land were put in place by Caillean Part two is about a priestess named Teleri who is compelled to marry a man she does not love in order to tie him to Avalon to ensure the safety of Britain [...]

  18. Terry (Ter05 TwiMoms/ MundieMoms) says:
    I thought this would be the story of the Lady of Avalon, but it is much than that It is the story of the very essence of the legend of Avalon, not one Priestess but three of them, and of than one incarnation of the mighty King that will come to save Britain It is, like the previous book, a prequel to Arthur The beliefs of the Druids and the worshippers of the Goddess come to life, the presence throughout centuries of the Faerie Queen who watches, and at times has a hand in history as it plays [...]

  20. Rita says:
    Estou satisfeita com este livro, gostei de o ler e consegui gostar de facto de uma personagem Viviane.Marion Zimmer Bradley n o de todo uma escritora de elei o para mim, pelo menos ainda n o se revelou at data Felizmente tenho vindo a apreciar melhor as suas obras e a adaptar me melhor a elas Contudo, h algo demasiado frio, soturno e distante na escrita da autora que continua a afastar me um pouco e s o v rias as vezes que dou por mim a divagar.Este livro est dividido em tr s partes, sendo que c [...]

  21. Jessica Gadziala says:
    Following where The Forest House left off, Caillean flees with the young Gawen and establishes a life on the isle of Avalon After that story comes to its end we follow Dierna and her young priestess Teleri Then in the third part of the book, we get to watch the young Viviane from the incredible Mists of Avalon grow and we finally get a bit of insight into how she became what she was.Perhaps the most slow moving of the Avalon books I have read thus far at times boring at times leaving you feeling [...]

  22. Maggie Maxfield says:
    Again Potentialy epic Dismally soap operatic But this leads me to my dilemma Is there ever an epic novel that doesn t have some kind of soap operatic qualities SOQ And by SOQ, I mean the creation of a world where lives build upon eachother in such a way that the mention of one name, common to the outsider, brings with it a slew of twisted plot turns and possibly forboding Does Lord of the Rings have the same qualities, but hidden by a shroud of classicism Now I need to read other epic novels and [...]

  23. Candace says:
    This novel is about three women Caillean, Dierna and Viviane Caillean is the first Lady of Avalon, who will raise Gawen, the Sacred King Dierna is the next Lady of Avalon who will serve during Roman and Breton political rising Viviane, who follows her mother, Ana, serves as the Lady of Avalon during Saxon invasions We follow their lives through their service as priestesses of Avalon their joys, pains and rebirths This novel is filled with the cycles of life The reader follows characters through [...]

  24. TOM says:
    Bridges the gap between The Forest House and The Mists of Avalon Enjoyable light reading but nothing to blow your mind Split into three short novellas exploring the development of Avalon and the attempts to free Britain from the Romans.I find owning Marion Zimmer Bradley books uncomfortable after the abuse allegations so will be donating this to Oxfam.

  25. Saphira says:
    H muito que este livro estava esquecido numa das prateleiras da minha m e, tinha eu ainda 12 anos Tem muitas personagens Queixava se ela Felizmente para o O rei veado , muitas personagens e hist rias complexas eram j nessa altura duas das minhas coisas favoritas num livro Devorei o mais do que o li, e procurei depois os restantes volumes para saciar a minha curiosidade crescente de um mundo t o maravilhoso como aquele que me foi descrito pela primeira leitura Agora, muitos anos mais tarde, j for [...]

  26. Maria says:
    Mais um livro desta saga fant stica Adoro a personagem Morgana, perfeitamente fascinante Irrita me o Rei Artur, sempre a ser subjugado pela mulherzinha Gwenhwyfar que muito religiosa e completamente contra outro tipo de cultos Com vontade de ler rapidamente o pr ximo

  27. Rd says:
    I ve really enjoyed reading about Viviane and the other ancestors who made Avalon what it was in The Mists of Avalon I love the sense of history in this series, and the spirits who are continually reborn together and are bound together through the ages.

  28. Mele says:
    wish i could give it 3 1 2 stars better than forest house but not as good as mists does a good job of setting up mists , though I almost want to read mists again now but then I remember how miserable I was reading it this last time just a couple of months ago.

  29. Monica says:
    This book was almost as good as The Mists of Avalon, but not quite I really do believe that everyone should read these books at some point, only if they do read the first one If you are a fan of Bradley s other books then I definitely think that this novel is worth a read.

  30. Shirley McLain says:
    I have always enjoyed reading books about King Authur and his Knights of the Round Table This book focus is on the Druid Priestesses If you like fantasy you will love this book It keeps you turning the page.
